The bureaucratic hierarchy of the Roman Empire was reformed by Diocletian in the years around 297 A.D. Until 297 high officials such as tricenarii, ducenarii, centenarii, had been paid in gold sestertii. They maintained their customary allowances in a period of fierce inflation. After 297 ducenarii and centenarii were no longer high officials. They had the rank of the officers commanding 200 and 100 soldiers, respectively. They had nothing to do with the equestrian officials, called ducenarii and centenarii, of the previous age.
